We stayed here March 23, 2014 through March 27th 2014. We had a Double Queen Suite on the 4th floor. Every employee was more than accomodating, starting with our arrival. We drove from Indiana straight through to Clearwater, arriving around 11:00 am. My husband went to check in, even though we knew our room was probably not ready yet. The front desk lady let him know that the previous people had already checked out, but there was no way to know when our room would be ready. It was no problem to go ahead and park on the property and use the pool while we waited for our room, she took our phone number and called us as soon as it was cleaned which ended up being around 2:00 pm. Our room was clean and perfectly adequate size-wise for our family (3 adults and 2 children). There was a small kitchenette with a cooktop (didn't use), dinnerware, silverware, and coffee-maker (also didn't use). The bathroom was small, have to stand on either side of toilet to open door to get out, but all older motels have small bathrooms. The tub/shower was large and there was plenty of countertop space. Plenty of hot water, pressure was low, but manageable. We never had a problem with the air conditioning either, and the ceiling fan in the bedroom part of the suite was a pleasant surprise! I don't know why everyone is complaining about the breakfast, I can remember traveling when I was a kid and the continental breakfast was even less than they provide. Donuts, danishes, toast, muffins, and cereal, and milk, juice, coffee, and hot chocolate. More than sufficient. It is kind of weird that you can't take anything back to your room, but I can understand that others may have taken advantage of them and used the continental breakfast to supply all their snacks for the day, when that isn't the purpose of this amenity. If you don't like their policy/choices, there is a McDonald's 2 doors down, and a breakfast restaurant directly behind the motel. Crabby's (directly next door) also serves breakfast (very good!). Location is everything with this motel. Directly across the street from the beach, balconies with gulf views, pool with gulf views, every thing you could want within walking distance. We never had a problem getting towels or toiletries. Attitude is everything, I would find it difficult to deal with many of the people leaving bad/negative reviews I think. If you need to be waited on hand and foot, better to stay at the Hyatt or Hilton.
